Julie's Blog

Julie's Monthly Blog, Adjusting Adults Instead of Changing 2e Children discusses how schools and adults need to change perspective and approach to parenting and teaching 2e children. Rather than requiring the child to change, this month's blog talks about recognizing the strengths of a 2e child and using those strengths to get at what needs support.
